We've had an e-chat and like I thought we are looking for something like a small and intermate pub (or brewery or beer festival) for the UK EARTHBOUND.

The TUTS don't always go to the London gigs, which is probably why no-ones posted about the last one.

Ideally we'd like to have somewhere away from London centre so we can keep accomodation costs down, to make it viable for more TUTS to make the journey. 

Mega thanks for trying to help out DJ. Much appreciated. :D

Looking at TV's current touring schedule the UK EARTHBOUND will probably be later on in the year.

Interestingly the head brewer in Elland asked me yesterday if we wanted to have an EARTHBOUND gig there this year?

Really? We should do that!  :)

Let's keep it back as a stand by in case another few ideas we have don't work out Klaus. :D

Don't worry if we aren't back in Dave's brewery this year we will be in 2009. :D

EARTHBOUND 08.1 Proposal
« Reply #21 on: May 14, 2008, 02:04:23 PM »
EARTHBOUND 8 to elaborate on Fleagles brief post above, this is the Fleagles proposal for Earthbound 8 (UK)  8)

Fleagle discussed possible dates with Mr Smith and the 5th July was decided as the best option (given other dates were Fridays)  8)

The venue is a room at the Windmill Pub, the pub is on the bus route from Croydon, there are night buses that go past the pub to Croydon and trains through the night from East Croydon to Central London. 

For anyone who may wish to stay over there are a couple of hotels 15 and 20 mins walk from the pub one 5 mins either side of Fleagles house (for those who have visited Fleagle land). As a bonus it is a down hill walk from the pub and there will also be buses for the less active. We may be able to negotiate a better price with the hotels if there were enough people interested as I know the Hotels mainly cater for business people during the week and tend to be quiet at the weekends and sometimes do offers. 8)

If you wanted to do Glastonwick on the Friday you would not be able to get a train back but it's about an hours drive, from here or of course you could stay in Shoreham or Brighton :)

Not sure on situation for under 18's, if anyone wanted to bring juniors we could check this out  :-\

Well that's the plan so far  ;D

Fred glad to have you onboard, fingers crossed this would be a good date for everyone  ;D

Let us know what you think and we will set the wheels in motion  ;D

Like I said in Tj's b-day thread, any UK trips this Summer are unlikely for me...
Well, maybe... but it seems impossible for me to combine the two...  :(

re July 5th

Just to say that this date is NOT SET IN STONE, as far as the venue goes it will not be a problem anytime really - its just when TV can tie things in - he has given me a couple of Friday dates ( the day before Cambridge and the day before Flag day in Ipswich) but he also says there will probably be later dates in the year - so If the concensus is that we do later in the year - so be it!
Awaiting any comments

Not sure if I'll be able to make the 5th - but I'll certainly try!

Another possible location could be Spalding, I think I know a possible venue (the Blues club here which has featured 9 Below Zero amongst others). The only trouble is Spalding's not the easiest location to make it to and we don't have many hotels here - although a travel inn is opening in July, and other than travelling TUT's I am nervous of crowd size!

So Croydon I think is the better location, but maybe next time?

thanks Alan

I dont mind where it is:) ...Lincoln would be good as its a bit more central but at least we have this option in Sunny carshalton :) , really I neeed to know - (mostly but not conclusively )from UK TUTS when their preferred time of year and any non available dates
it would be nice if we could get everybodythere - perhaps people can PM me their UNAVAILABLE dates re holidays etc and We will try to arrange for a Saturday when all can get there - probably asking the impossible.. but you regulars/past attendees speak now or forever hold your head in despair

Fleags. You know the Croydon area's not a problem for me and Xa. And that date of the 5th is fine. And if it was a week later on Saturday 12th we'd be in Croydon anyway 'cause Sunday 13th is that Punkstock all day thingie at The Walkabout.

 And the day before Flag Day in Ipswich is fine too. I'm DJing and doing the quiz at that.

As to 'dates to avoid'...
 It would be easier to say what days we CAN make it than list all the ones we couldn't. Ha! But some are..

Saturday 21st June - JC & THE DISCIPLES @ BH2, Canning Town (my gig)
Thursday 26th June - TV Smith @ Bull & Gate, Kentish Town (A plug!)
Saturday 28th June - UK SUBS @ Shepperds Bush (unless moved to another venue)
Sunday 13th July - PUNKSTOCK ALLDAYER @ Walkabout, Croydon
Saturday 2nd August - AND NOW WE'RE EVEN @ BH2, Canning Town (my gig)
7th through 11th August - BLACKPOOL (REBELLION)
Saturday 30th August - RED FLAG 77 DAY @ Steamboat, Ipswich (I'm DJing and quizmaster)
Saturday 6th September - X~RAY SPEX @ Chalk Farm Roundhouse

Fantastic. :D

Bloody well done the Fleags. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

YOU ROCK!

Come on TUTS give the guys some support. They are the only TUTS to pick up the gaunlet.

We are TUTSupporters. ;D

Arranging these gigs is a lot of work let's give them all the positive encouragement they need to make this amazing advenure happen. :D

It's great to book it near London so that the German TUTS will find it a little easier. :D Nice one. :D
 
It's in my diary Fleagles. Please can you book me some accomodation?

I've text Smit, if he's not on holiday he'll be up for it too. :D

Thank you so much for running it this year. It would hve been a real shame to miss our first yearof EARTHBOUND.

THE TV Smith UK fan club gathering. Special rare songs. Long sets. Great people and lots of...

BEER! :D

YOU ROCK...

...GODS!  :D

Thank you so much.

I am a very happy man. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Nice one Fred and DJ ROCK too. :D

Now all I need is a Sparks show. ;)
